Here it is...
You require the following ingredients:
1 1/3 cup joshinko (rice flour. Or you can get rice flour and grind it, but it must be ground just enough so it's as a flour. Any wheat grinder would work well. Just use the electronic one. I did it by hand and it hurts>>)
Making the rice dumplings:
Put rice flour in a bowl and add warm water. Knead the dough well (or just use a metal spoon if you want to). Make small round dumplings (the size of rubber balls). Place the dumplings in a (vegetable) steamer and steam them on high heat for 10 min. Cool the dumplings and skewer them in bamboo sticks. (3-4 dumplings each stick.)
Making the sweet sause:
Mix water, sugar, and soysauce in a pan and put it on medium heat. Mix the water and katakuriko starch in a cup an
Exposing the "Shadowland Wolf Foundation"I posted this before on AW's comment section, but I'd like to bring it to the attention of a wider audience, as it does appear that this obviously fraudulent organisation has quite a large following, and its representatives have appeared on chat shows to lecture people on the subject of wolves, which I hope this blog entry will demonstrate they have absolutely no qualifications to do so.Exposing the "Shadowland Wolf Foundation"1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The Foundation is based in California, and purports to offer "a once-in-a-lifetime-experience for individuals, families, school groups, youth organizations, corporations, social clubs, etc. to meet and play with our pack of nine Alaskan Timber Wolves", as well as "educating children of ALL ages about the true nature of wolves."

Horses Are For Courses!With all this talk of horse meat in the news lately, it's time we take a step back and really ask ourselves all the fuss is about.Horses Are For Courses!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
History of Horse Meat
Horses are often revered as working animals, and companions. They've greatly contributed to the advancing of civilizations, from the horse-drawn war chariots of the Romans, to the Pony Express of the Old West, horses have had a significant and lasting effect on all of the civilizations that have adopted them. These faithful, hardworking animals have had a place at our side since we first domesticated them. But horses were on the menu long before we were on their backs.
Horse meat was central to our ancestors' diet and played a sacred role in rituals and customs. For example, Celtic chieftains were buried with their steeds, the Vikings' favorite meat was horse meat, and Caligula even appointed his horse as a Senator of Rome. The switch from food source to working animal can be partially attributed to Pope Gregory III in the 8th c
Oh yeah, I did - RANT about Avril Lavigne's songA blog I follow just posted a gif from that song by Avril, called 'Girlfriend'. We all remember this, I believe, it was a big hit.Oh yeah, I did - RANT about Avril Lavigne's song3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But seriously, both song AND video are so absolutely cruel and egocentric that I can do nothing but roll my eyes when ever I see/hear it.
Avril is bitching. That's pretty much it, she's bawwwing about how she wants a dude who - that's right - already has a girlfriend.
She's his girl. He allowed her to be his girl, therefore, gee, I don't know, MAYBE he loves her! Maybe she's a really sweet and kind girl, why else would he date her?
But no, don't you dare to think that, because Avril knows what the girl is really like.
Let's see a few statements she makes during the song.
She's like so whatever
What's that supposed to mean? That she's boring?
Well, at least she's not boasting her ego through 50% of the song, while bitching about Avril in other 50%.
No. the girlfriend is so whatever, while Avril is a motherfucking princess,
SCIENTIFIC FACTS IN THE BIBLE We'll be adding the spanish version soonSCIENTIFIC FACTS IN THE BIBLE6 years ago in Personal More Like This
GENESIS 1:1,3 (written 3,450 years ago): "In the beginning God created the Heaven and the earth . . . And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters."
Science expresses the universe in five terms: time, space, matter, power and motion. "In the beginning (time) God created (power) the Heaven (space) and the earth (matter) . . . And the Spirit of God moved (motion) upon the face of the waters." .
GENESIS 2:1 (after creation): "Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them."
The Hebrew word used here is the past definite tense for the verb "finished," indicating an action completed in the past, never again to occur. The creation was "finished" -- once and for all. That is what the First Law of Thermodynamics says. It states that neither matter nor energy can be either created or destroyed. There is no "creation" ongoing today. It is "finished" exactly as the Bible states.
GENESIS 3:15: "And I will put e

Challenge 1: Clean Media, Clean MindWelcome to the first 30 day challenge! This month’s challenge is:Challenge 1: Clean Media, Clean Mind2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Clean Media, Clean Mind
You’ve heard “you are what you eat” and it applies to more than just food. So the challenge is to clean up what sites you visit, videos you watch, and music you listen to. After the month is over, tell us via picture or journal how changing what you consume, has changed how you think, speak, and act. Things to cut out of your media diet: sex, drugs, drinking, swearing, occult, and violence.
These challenges will be harder for some than others, so I’ve included three levels of commitment.
Level 1: baby steps
Cut out media that is blatantly sinful. I’m talking porn, violent movies, songs that swear every other word, etc. If it’s too hard to hold off for 30 days, consider how that itself is a problem. Are you making media an idol? Talk to a trust friend about it or a fellow group member. Also consider listening to a positive radio station:

The Truth about the Candice Berner caseRead it and weep, those who defended the wolf's conduct. The full facts of the case have finally been released. Wolves were the culprits. No, they were not really hybrids, or rabid, or acting in self defence.The Truth about the Candice Berner case3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've organised this entry in a way responding to all the questions which, until now, had been left unanswered. Questions are written in normal font, while the segments of the report are in italics.
1. Were wolves regularly hunted prior to the attack? (Hunting wolves is the time-proven method of keeping wolves fearful of humans)
Human use of wolves in the Chignik Lake area is low. Mandatory sealing documented the harvest of a few wolves during the last decade, but no wolves have been sealed in recent years. p.6
2. Were there any other animal tracks on the scene? (Coyote, mountain lion, bear, dog etc.)
Animal tracks along the sides of the road and in the area of the attack were identified as wolf tracks based on the size of individual tracks. Although

Animal Rights activists vs Invasive SpeciesFrom the indominable Retrieverman:Animal Rights activists vs Invasive Species3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It is well-known to readers of this blog that I am ultimately quite contemptuous of the animal rights movement.
And after reading William Stolzenburg’s Rat Island: Predators in Paradise and the World’s Greatest Wildlife Rescue, I’ve become even more so.
Stolzenburg is one of the best writers about ecology who writes for a general audience. His previous book, Where the Wild Things Were, carefully chronicles the scientific discoveries that have shown that large predators are a great asset to ecosystems. In a world where human activities have so severely pared back the ranges of so many large predators and forced some of them into extinction, ecosystems are now suffering great imbalances. These imbalances include overpopulation of grazing or browsing species– such as the overpopulation of white-tailed deer in North America– and a phenomenon known as “mesopredator release,
